Delivered at Place Unloaded (DPU)

Delivered at Place Unloaded (DPU) is an incoterm that requires the seller to deliver the goods at the disposal of the buyer after they have been unloaded from the arriving means of transport. DPU is the only Incoterm rule that requires the seller to unload goods at the place of destination.

DPU can apply to any—and more than one—mode of transport. The buyer and seller should specify and agree upon a named place of destination. Where applicable, DPU requires the seller to clear goods for export without any obligation to clear the goods for import, pay import duty, or carry out import customs formalities.
